Scarva Nano Colours NPC031 Jet Black Parian Casting Slip From £14.24
Firing: 1220 - 1240°C
Introducing our new range of Nano Parian Coloured casting slips. Parian is derived from Paros the Aegean Island famous for its beautiful white marble widely used for sculpture by the classical Greeks. Parian ware became very popular in the mid-nineteenth century and was manufactured by many notable Stoke-on-Trent potteries. Parian is a self-glazing body, extremely translucent and ideally suited for casting to produce figurines, dolls and light forms etc. We have used our range of Nano Colours to create this beautiful range of over 30 vivid coloured Parian casting slips.

The slip sets in 10 mins, removable from the mould after 1 hour and will hold its form well. Once fired to stoneware temp the result is great, dishwasher safe and with it being self finishing if you burnish before firing the results are comparable to actual Whitby jet even without a glaze. If firing to the top end of the range (1240) you need to cast slightly thicker (15min casting time) to prevent warping.

The black parian is just beautiful once fired. I can not recommend it enough.

I used 5 different Scarva Parian casting slips to make mugs: 2 layers of contrasting slip per mug, and glazed the interior with Scarva GZ2150 transparent glaze, fired to cone 6. The Parian clay fired beautifully. But all of my 4 mugs broke into pieces. Was it wrong to glaze the inside?

Hello, I need a final product to be a specific size and wanted to know how big the master shape should be. What is the total shrinkage from wet cast to fired at 1240c? Is this same throughout all Nano Parian range? As well, what gloss or satin clear glaze would you recommend to use with Nano Parian range? Many thanks in advance for your answers! Kind regards, Justas
